CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Has US$1-Billion Loan Exposure to Dubai World
-----------------------------------------------------------------
China Construction Bank said it has a US$1 billion exposure to
Dubai World, arabianbusiness.com says.

Citing a report from Hexun.com Chinese news Web site,
arabianbusiness.com relates the bank's executives declared
that the Hong Kong branch of CCB granted Dubai World a loan of
US$1 billion.

The report added that the bank's "officials said that the quality
of assets under operation of the lender's overseas institutions
worsened seriously, which was mainly due to loan."

This is the first time the CCB has admitted the full extent of its
exposure to Dubai World's debts.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on March 26, 2010,
Stefania Bianchi at Dow Jones Newswires said Dubai's government
will inject about US$9.5 billion into Dubai World and real-estate
developer Nakheel.  Dow Jones said that, according to a statement
by Dubai government, cash for Dubai World "will be funded by $5.7
billion remaining from the loan previously made available from the
Government of Abu Dhabi and from internal Dubai government
resources."  The statement also said "the government is offering
to recapitalize Dubai World through the equitization of the
Government's US$8.9 billion claim and a commitment to fund up to
US$1.5 billion in new funds."  The statement also said the
government "is offering to inject approximately US$8 billion in
new funds, which will have a significant direct impact on the
construction and real estate sectors and the wider economy, and to
recapitalize Nakheel through the equitization of the government's
US$1.2 billion claim."

Dow Jones also reported that a government financial advisor said
on a conference call that Dubai World's restructuring will include
the selling of some assets.  Dow Jones said the government has no
specific timeline and "there's no immediate action" on asset
sales.

                       6-Month Standstill

In November 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter ran a story
about Dubai World seeking a six-month standstill on its debt
obligations.  The government of Dubai said it would restructure
Dubai World and has appointed Deloitte LLP to lead the
restructuring effort, naming an executive at the consultancy as
the group's "chief restructuring officer."

Bloomberg News' Arif Sharif and Laura Cochrane said Dubai World
has US$59 billion in liabilities.  Bloomberg said Dubai
accumulated US$80 billion of debt by expanding in banking, real
estate and transportation before credit markets seized up last
year.

The Wall Street Journal said Standard & Poor's in an October
report estimated Dubai World could be responsible for as much as
50% of Dubai's total government and corporate debt load of some
US$80 billion to US$90 billion.

                         Large Exposure

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Dec. 1,
2009, The Wall Street Journal's Chip Cummins, Dana Cimilluca and
Sara Schaefer Munoz, citing a person familiar with the matter,
said that U.K.'s Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC, HSBC Holdings
PLC, Barclays PLC, Lloyds Banking Group PLC, Standard Chartered
PLC and ING Groep NV of the Netherlands, are among the
international banks that have large exposure in Dubai World.

RBS has lent roughly US$1 billion to Dubai World, another person
said, according to the Journal.  Sources also told the Journal
Barclays's exposure to Dubai World is roughly US$200 million, and
that exposure is effectively hedged.

David Robertson at The (U.K.) Times reported Credit Suisse has
estimated that European banks could have EUR40 billion
(GBP36 billion) in loans to Dubai and much of this could be at
risk if the Gulf emirate defaults.

The Journal, citing people familiar with the matter, said the
banks with the greatest exposure to Dubai World are Abu Dhabi
Commercial Bank and Emirate NBD PJSC, people familiar with the
matter said.

Dow Jones Newswires' Margot Patrick related that a report by the
Emirates Banks Association said the top eight foreign banks in the
United Arab Emirates by lending volume -- HSBC, Standard
Chartered, Barclays, HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland's ABN Amro,
Citigroup Inc., BNP Paribas SA, Lloyds and Credit Agricole SA's
Calyon, -- extended about US$36 billion in loans in 2008
throughout the federation, without breaking down the loans by
emirate or type of borrower.

ALWAR POWER: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Rating on INR230MM Long Term Loans
------------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned a long term rating of LBB to INR230 million long
term loans of Alwar Power Company Private Limited.  The outlook on
the rating is Stable.

APCPL's credit rating favorably factors in the long experience of
the key promoter in the World Bank in infrastructure domain and
his experience in setting up units to manufacture mustard crop
residue (MCR) based briquettes in Rajasthan (adjacent to the
proposed power plant).  The credit profile is also supported by
the ample availability of MCR in and around the project site, the
substantial energy deficit in the Northern and Western regions of
the country, which is likely to result in limited demand risks and
healthy offtake.  The attractive feed-in tariffs for MCR based
power in Rajasthan are expected to result in healthy margins in
the business besides the prospects of upside from sales to power
trading companies at spot rates and sale of carbon credits. The
rating also derives comfort from the fact that all statutory
clearances and land are already in place, a long term Power
Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the state utility has been signed
and a fixed price Engineering Procurement and Commissioning or EPC
contract for the Boiler-Turbine-Generator or BTG and Balance of
Plant (BoP) packages with a well established contractor has been
executed.

Alwar Power Company Private Limited is currently setting up 7.5 MW
mustard crop residue based biomass plant in Alwar district,
Rajasthan.  The EPC contract for the same has been executed with
Walchandnagar Industries Limited on a fixed price-fixed time
contract basis.  PPA has been signed with Rajasthan State Utility
to sell 100% power produced at feed-in tariffs as declared by the
State Electricity Regulatory Commission.  Currently the project is
in initial stages of construction.  The project has been funded in
a debt equity ratio of 57%: 43%.


DIGAMBER CAPFIN: CRISIL Rates INR60-Mil. LT Bank Loan at 'B+'
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Stable' rating to the long-term bank
loan facility of Digamber Capfin Ltd.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR60 Million Long-Term Bank Loan      B+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects DCL's very small presence in the microfinance
business with regional concentration of operations, modest
financial risk profile, and exposure to risks inherent in the
microfinance industry.  These rating weaknesses are partially
offset by the company's sound asset quality.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects DCL to benefit from the growth opportunities in the
microfinance sector.  However, given DCL's limited experience in
the sector, its ability to grow its business and accordingly scale
up its systems and processes to manage asset quality and operating
expenses, needs to be demonstrated.  The outlook could be revised
to 'Positive' if DCL exhibits sustained profitable growth without
compromising on its asset quality.  Conversely, the outlook could
be revised to 'Negative' if DCL is unable to raise adequate
resources to fund its planned growth or is not able to maintain
its asset quality and profitability as it expands its operations.

                       About Digamber Capfin

Incorporated in 1995, DCL is a non-deposit-taking non-banking
financial company (NBFC-ND) registered with the Reserve Bank of
India.  DCL lends to joint-liability groups (JLGs) and provides
top-up loans to clients in and around a few districts in Jaipur.
It entered into the microfinance business in 2007, prior to which
it was involved in two-wheeler financing.  As on February 28,
2010, DCL had a borrower base of 9920 members across eight
branches in four districts of Rajasthan.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), DCL
reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR0.5 million on a total
income of INR10.8 million, against a PAT of INR0.5 million on a
total income of INR9.8 million for the corresponding period of the
previous year.  For the nine months ended December 31, 2009, the
company's net profit was INR0.4 million on a total income of
INR9.4 million.


DURGAPUR MEDICAL: CRISIL Places 'B+' Rating on INR35MM Cash Credit

CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Negative/P4' ratings to Durgapur
Medical Centre Pvt Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR35 Million Cash Credit             B+/Negative (Assigned)
   INR443.50 Million Long Term Loan      B+/Negative (Assigned)
   INR18.30 Million Proposed Long-Term   B+/Negative (Assigned)
                    Bank Loan Facility
   INR3.20 Million Letter of Credit &    P4 (Assigned)
                       Bank Guarantee

The ratings reflect DMCPL's restricted financial risk profile,
marked by limited accruals in the nascent phase of its operations
and high gearing, and the company's exposure to risks relating to
geographical concentration in its revenue profile, to intense
competition in the healthcare industry, and to the-limited
spending capacity of patients at its hospital. These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that DMCPL derives
from its strategic location.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that DMCPL's credit risk profile will remain under
pressure because of large debt repayment obligations maturing in
2010-11 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31).  The
ratings may be downgraded if DMCPL's liquidity is strained by
decrease in accruals or larger-than-expected increase in capital
expenditure. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Stable' in
case the company's financial risk profile strengthens, supported
by improved profitability and reduced debt levels, or in case of
higher equity infusion into the company.

                       About Durgapur Medical

Set up in 1987, DMCPL was acquired by the current management in
2006.  The company owned three acres of land in Durgapur (West
Bengal), on which it began constructing a hospital in 2006.  The
hospital commenced operations in April 2008.  The company has five
promoters: two doctors and three businessmen, who have equal
holding of the company.  Dr. Satyajit Bose, one of the promoters,
was the senior consultant cardiac surgeon at Ruby Hospital,
Kolkata, Suraksha Hospital, Kolkata, and Apollo Gleneagles
Hospital, Kolkata. Dr. Arungashu Ganguly, another promoter, was a
consultant of interventional cardiology at Suraksha Hospital,
Kolkata and Batra Heart Research Centre, New Delhi, and the
resident house physician in Medical College, Calcutta.  The other
three promoters are businessmen based in Durgapur.

DMCPL's hospital, The Mission Hospital, in Durgapur is a 250-bed
hospital.  Recently, the company's management entered into an
agreement with Modern Medical Centre, Raipur (Chhattisgarh).  MMI
is a 250-bed hospital in Raipur, which was set up under a society
in 1995. Under the agreement, DMCPL's management will operate and
manage 50 beds at MMI.

DMCPL reported a net loss of INR163 million on net sales of INR246
million for 2008-09.


DUSTVEN PRIVATE: ICRA Places 'LB' Rating on INR21.2MM Term Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an LB rating each to the INR125 million working
capital limits and INR21.2 million Term Loan of Dustven Private
Limited.  ICRA has also assigned an A4 rating to the INR110
million non-fund based limits of DPL indicating risk-prone-credit-
quality rating assigned by ICRA in the short term.

The ratings reflects DPL's high working capital intensity of the
operations on account of high debtors and inventory levels which
resulted in stretched debt servicing indicators and delays in debt
servicing in the recent past.  The rating is further constrained
by DPL's modest scale of operations, its revenue concentration
from its major clients, its susceptibility to changes in raw
material prices and intensely competitive nature of the industry.
However, the ratings draws comfort from the company's established
position in the air pollution control equipments (APCE) and
industrial ventilation systems, its reputed clientele and
favorable prospects for APCE industry.

DustVen Private Limited, incorporated in 1972, is in the business
of Air Pollution Control Equipments.  It designs, manufactures,
markets and installs Industrial Air Pollution Control Systems and
Ventilation Systems.  Its products include wide varieties of fans,
blowers, fabric collectors, scrubbers, dust monitors, evaporative
cooling system and filtered air supply systems. DPL provide
Environmental Protection systems that consistently met
International standards, particularly the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA) standards.  It was promoted by a
group of experienced Air Pollution Control (APC) engineers led by
Mr. B. Vyas Rao along with his co-promoters who had prior
experience in the designing APC equipment and systems.

Recent Results

As per the provisional numbers, DPL has reported a net profit of
INR5.7 million on an operating income of INR 436.9 million during
2008-09.


DYNAMIX CHAINS: Delays in Loan payment Cue CRISIL 'B-' Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B-/Stable/P4' ratings to the bank
facilities of Dynamix Chains Manufacturing Pvt Ltd, part of the
Dynamix group.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR378.5 Million Term Loans            B-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR100.00 Million Packing Credit*      P4 (Assigned)
   INR200.00 Million Post Shipment        P4 (Assigned)
                           Credit*
   INR50.00 Million Standby Letter of     P4 (Assigned)
            Credit and Bank Guarantee

   *Fully interchangeable

The ratings are constrained by delays in repayment of term loan
obligations by a group company, Rolly Jewellery Pvt Ltd.  The
ratings also factor in the Dynamix group's weak financial risk
profile, marked by high gearing and poor debt protection metrics,
its working-capital-intensive operations, and exposure to risks
related to geographic concentration in its revenue profile.  These
weaknesses are partially offset by the Dynamix group's moderate
market position in the jewellery industry, and the benefits that
it derives from its sound manufacturing facilities.

For arriving at the ratings, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of Dynamix Chains, SAY India Jewellers Pvt
Ltd, Lily Jewellery Pvt Ltd, Yash Jewellery Pvt Ltd, Rolly
Jewellery Pvt Ltd, Dania Oro Jewellery Pvt Ltd, Jewel America Inc
and Barjon Inc.  This is because these entities, collectively
referred to as the Dynamix group, are under a common promoter
group, in the same line of business, and have operational
synergies and fungible cash flows among them.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that the Dynamix group will continue to benefit
from its sound manufacturing facilities and reputed customer base.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if there is significant
improvement in the group's financial risk profile because of
healthy cash accruals and profitability, and if the group
companies demonstrate a track record of timely repayment of debt
obligations.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative'
if the group's financial risk profile deteriorates because of
continued losses in Jewel America, or if the group undertakes any
large, debt-funded capital expenditure programme.

                          About the Group

The Dynamix group of companies, engaged in the manufacture of
jewellery, is promoted by Mr. Pramod Goenka.  The group
manufactures gold, silver, and diamond-studded jewellery, which is
mainly exported to countries such as the US and the UK.

Set up in October 2007, Dynamix Chains manufactures specialised
chains and pendants, which are exported to the US.  SAY India,
Lily, Dania Oro and Yash (set up in May 1995, February 2004,
February 2006, and November 2006, respectively), export diamond-
studded gold jewellery, while Rolly (established in January 2005)
exports light-weight electro-form jewellery. Jewel America, a
leading jewellery wholesaler in the US, was acquired by the group
in February 2009.

Dynamix Chains reported a profit after tax PAT of INR40 million on
net sales of INR667 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31).


ECP INDUSTRIES: Weak Liquidity Prompts CRISIL 'C' Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'C/P4' ratings to the bank facilities of
ECP Industries Ltd.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR56 Million Cash Credit              C (Assigned)
   INR15 Million Bank Guarantee           P4 (Assigned)
   INR12 Million Letter of Credit         P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect ECP's delay in servicing its term loan in the
past because of weak liquidity.  The ratings also reflect ECP's
limited scale of operations, and weak financial risk profile, weak
debt protection measures. These rating weaknesses are partially
offset by the benefits that ECP derives from its promoters'
experience.

Incorporated in 1983, ECP (formerly, Eastern Cylinders Pvt Ltd)
manufactures domestic liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders,
with capacity to produce 450,000 cylinders per annum.  The company
acquired its current name in 1998. ECP received ISO 9002
certification in 1986.  Its product profile includes LPG
cylinders, LPG pressure regulators, and industrial valves.  The
company manufactures LPG cylinders of various capacities, ranging
from small domestic cylinders to large commercial containers,
conforming to various specifications such as BS 5045, DOT 4BA, ISO
4706, and IS 3196.

ECP reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR0.57 million on net
sales of INR182 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31) against a PAT of INR0.61 million on net sales
of INR182 million for 2007-08.


FUTURA POLYESTERS: ICRA Assigns 'LB-' Rating on INR1.26B Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LB-' rating each to the INR1260.0 million
term loans (including proposed term loans of INR427.0 million) and
the INR44.0 million cash credit facilities of Futura Polyesters
Limited.

The ratings factor in the unsatisfactory debt servicing track
record of Futura stretched liquidity position due to stock
accumulation and losses due to declining off-take over the last
two years owing to weak economic scenario.  The ratings are also
impacted by the relatively small size of operations of Futura in
the specialty polyester yarn / resin business, stiff competition
in the global market from Chinese players and vulnerability of
profitability to volatility in forex rates.  The ratings also
consider the experience of the management in specialty yarn and
resins businesses and its strong customer profile.

Futura Polymers Limited, earlier known as Indian Organic Chemicals
Limited until 2002, was incorporated in 1960 as a chemical
manufacturer at Khopoli, Maharashtra.  The company was promoted by
the first generation entrepreneur late Mr. B.M. Ghia.  In 1972,
the company commenced manufacturing of polyester staple fiber
(PSF) at its new facility at Manali, Chennai. In 2001, Futura
incorporated a new company Innovassynth Technologies (India)
Limited and Futura transferred its Chemicals division at Khopoli
to ITIL.  Futura also incorporated Futura Industries Limited as a
subsidiary to develop PET recycling and conversion to polyester
feed stock; in 2001, this was amalgamated with Futura.  In 1993, a
separate company commenced production of PET resin and preforms at
Manali and was amalgamated with Futura in 2002; the current
capacity for solid state polymers is 57,000 mtpa and PET preforms
is 20,000 mtpa.


GARNETT SPECIALITY: ICRA Places 'LB+' Rating on INR220MM Bank Debt
------------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an "LB+" rating to the INR220 million fund based
bank facilities of Garnett Speciality Paper Limited.  ICRA has
also assigned a long term rating of "A4" to the INR90 million fund
based bank facilities of GSPL.

The ratings assigned by ICRA reflect the delays in debt servicing
by the company over past few months and the stretched liquidity
position of the company.  The rating is also constrained on
account of low capacity utilization of GSPL's manufacturing
facilities; decline in turnover, and below average profitability
indicators.  The rating however positively factors in the
substantial operational efforts and considerable financial support
extended by the promoters over past few years to shift the
Garnett, United Kingdom (UK) operations to GSPL's manufacturing
facilities in India.  As a result, GSPL has now been able to
produce similar high quality products locally, as were earlier
manufactured by Garnett facilities in UK.   GSPL now exports its
products to the customers earlier serviced by Garnett UK. With
stabilization of the operations at GSPL's facilities and proposed
equity infusion by the promoter group of GSPL, ICRA expects the
operational and financial profile of the company to improve in
near to medium term. Going forward, the company's ability to
adequately utilize its manufacturing facilities and its ability to
improve profitability indicators will remain the key rating
sensitivities.

                     About Garnett Speciality

Garnett Speciality Paper Limited is promoted by Auger Group U K
which in turn is owned by Mr M V Mehta.  GSPL was established
during the year 2004-05 and is into the manufacturing hi-end
value added paper products which are largely supplied to European
countries. GSPL's operations were earlier located in Garnett UK,
but to reduce its cost of production, GSPL shifted its
manufacturing operations to India in phases over past few years.
As a part of shifting its operations to India, GSPL took over the
operations of Nathani Paper Mills Limited which was under the
purview of Board of Industrial and Financial Reconstruction and
later NPML was amalgamated with GSPL.  The manufacturing unit of
GSPL is located at Vapi in Gujarat.  During ten month period
ending 31st January 2010, the company reported a net sale of
INR208 million and a net profit of INR7.25 million as against a
net sale of INR298 million in 2008-09 and net profit of INR4.62
million.


JOHNSON ENTERPRISE: ICRA Puts 'LBB-' Rating on Various Bank Debts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned a long term rating of 'LBB-' with stable outlook
to fund based limits and a short term rating of 'A4' to non-fund
based limits of Johnson Enterprise Ltd.

The ratings are constrained by JEL's low margins because of low
value added nature of work and intense competition in civil
contracting space, its relatively high gearing, high working
capital intensity with long outstanding receivables and small
scale of operations resulting in concentration risks.
Nevertheless the ratings take comfort from the order book, long
track record of the company and experienced management of JEL.

Johnson Enterprise Ltd was incorporated in year 2004 with an
objective to execute civil construction related work for
government, semi-government and private entities as a primary
contractor and a sub-contractor.  Some of the projects executed by
JEL in the past include providing and fixing gantry sign boards,
applying thermoplastic paint on roads, earth work and maintenance
of roads.  JEL is a flagship company of Johnson Group with the
other group companies viz.  M/s. Johnson Associates and M/s.
Johnson Corporation dealing in Ready Mix Concrete manufacturing
and trading in construction materials business respectively.
JEL is currently led by Mr. Pritesh Shah with a total head count
of 42.

The unexecuted order book of the company as of 28th February, 2010
stood at INR 189.8 million.


KALAPURNA STEEL: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Rating on INR50MM Bank Debts
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned a 'LBB' rating to the INR50.0 million fund based
limits of Kalapurna Steel & Engineering Pvt Ltd.  The outlook on
the long term rating is stable.  ICRA has also assigned an A4
rating to INR100.0 million non fund based bank limits of KSEPL.

The assigned ratings take into account the stretched financial
position of KSEPL characterized by a leveraged capital structure
leading to modest coverage indicators and cash accruals, thin net
profit margins owing to low value addition prevalent in the
trading business and its exposure to foreign exchange fluctuations
due to large imports.  The ratings also factor in the exposure to
inherent cyclicality of the steel sector and fragmented nature of
KSEPL`s business operations.  The ratings however favorably factor
in the established position of the company owing to the long
experience of the promoter and reputed client base at present
which includes government and semi-government organizations.

KSEPL was promoted as a proprietorship firm in the year 1994, by
Mr. Naresh Chandan and was converted to a private limited company
in the year 2006.  The company is into trading of ferrous and
non-ferrous metals and caters to industries like chemical,
fertilizer, petrochemicals and engineering organizations.

During 2008-09, KSEPL reported a net profit of INR 5.8 million on
net sales of INR 326.2 million.


KARNATAKA HANDLOOM: ICRA Rates INR270MM Bank Debts at 'LBB+'
------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an LBB+ rating to the INR270 million fund-based
bank limits of The Karnataka Handloom Development Corporation
Limited.  The outlook on the assigned rating is stable.

The rating reflects the high working capital intensity of KHDC
because of delayed payments from the Education Department,
Government of Karnataka (GoK), resulting in higher borrowings and
consequently a high interest burden and consequently a pressure on
profits; the company's  high dependence on the GoK and the
Government of India (GoI) for subsidies high sales concentration
risks since the Education Department, GoK, alone accounts for a
majority its total sales and an aggressive capital structure.
ICRA also takes note of the term loans that KHDC has availed from
the GoK which has not been serviced.  These risks however are
partially offset by KHDC's strategic importance to both the GoK
and the GoI for meeting their social obligations to the weavers in
the state of Karnataka, leading to regular financial support being
received by the company from them and the adequate credit quality
of the GoK.  While assigning the rating, ICRA has assumed the
continuity of such support going forward.

KHDC was incorporated in 1975 under the 20 Point Programme of the
GoI and the Government of Karnataka (GoK) to promote the handloom
industry and to provide economic and social welfare to weavers in
the State of Karnataka.  KHDC procures raw material to weavers and
procure fabric from them against payment of conversion charges.
KHDC is also the nodal agency for implementation of various
welfare schemes of the GoK and the GoI for the weavers in the
state such as living cum workshed, health and life insurance and
group saving schemes.

In 2008-09, KHDC reported an operating income of INR881.13 million
and net profit of INR3.05 million.


MODERN TUBE: CARE Assigns 'CARE BB' Rating on Various Bank Debts
----------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned 'CARE BB' rating to the Long-term Bank
Facilities and 'PR4' rating to the Short-term Bank facilities of
Modern Tube Industries Limited aggregating INR35.97 crore.

Facilities with 'Double B' rating are applicable for facilities
having tenure of more than one year.  Facilities with this rating
are considered to offer inadequate safety for timely servicing of
debt obligations.  Such facilities carry high credit risk.
Facilities with 'PR Four' rating would have inadequate capacity
for timely payment of short-term debt obligations and carry very
high credit risk.  Such facilities are susceptible to default.
This rating is applicable for facilities having a tenure up to one
year.

CARE assigns '+' or '-' signs to be shown after the assigned
rating (wherever necessary) to indicate the relative position
within the band covered by the rating symbol.

                                  Amount
   Facilities                  (INR crore)      Ratings
   ----------                  -----------      -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities     27.47          'CARE BB'
   Short-term Bank Facilities     8.50          'PR4'

Rating Rationale

The rating is constrained by small size of operations, low
networth base, below average financial risk profile of MTIL and
declining profitability margins in FY09 & 9MFY10.  Very short
track record of manufacturing operations, low level of capacity
utilization, working capital intensive nature of industry and raw
material price volatility risk further constrain the rating. These
far outweigh the experience of promoters and stable outlook of
user industries.

MTIL's ability to achieve growth in total income while improving
profitability margins and significant debt funded expansion plans,
if any, are the key rating sensitivities.

                         About Modern Tube

Incorporated in 2006, MTIL is promoted by Shri Mahendra Bhansali
and is engaged in manufacturing of stainless steel Electric
Resistance Welded and Seamless pipes & tubes with the installed
capacity of 7200 Metric Tonne Per Annum.

MTIL's total income remained in line with FY08 at INR59.083 crore
as against INR59.27 crore reported in FY08.  It has reported PAT
of INR0.60 crore in FY09 as compared to INR0.94 crore in FY08.
During 9MFY10, RMTIL has reported PBT (Op. Profit) of INR0.39 on
total income of INR80.88 crore.


OPTIMA CUBE: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Rating on INR50 Million Term Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LBB' rating to the INR50 million term loan
and the INR 140 million long term fund based bank facility of
Optima Cube Inframaterials Private Limited.  The outlook of the
assigned rating is stable.  ICRA has also assigned an A4 rating to
OCIPL's INR140 million short term non-fund based bank facility.
The ratings are constrained by OCIPL's limited operating history,
its moderate order book position, uncertain revenue outlook for
its Autoclaved Aerated Concrete blocks unit and the inherent
cyclicality of the Pre Engineered Buildings segment.  The ratings,
however, draw comfort from the favorable demand outlook for the
PEB industry, OCIPL's modest debt repayment obligations in the
long term and established presence of its parent -- Cube
Construction Engineering Limited in the industrial construction
space.

Incorporated in June 2008, OCIPL is promoted as a 50:50 Joint
Venture by Mr. Rajesh Sampat and Mr. Sanjay Shah. Apart from
OCIPL, each promoter has his own individual business unit.  Mr.
Rajesh Sampat has over 20 years of experience in the manufacturing
of diamond tools and cutting machines for marble and granite
mining industry and is the promoter of the Optima Group which
includes Optima Diamond Tools Private Limited, Optima Machinery
Private Limited and Cutting Edge Technologies.  Mr. Sanjay Shah
has over 15 years of experience in the civil construction industry
and is the promoter of CCEL.  As on January 31, 2010, CCEL held a
50% stake in OCIPL while the promoters of the Optima Group held
the balance 50%. OCIPL operates in two business segments ? PEBs
and AAC blocks. OCIPL has setup a green field manufacturing
facility in Jarod near Vadodara having an installed capacity of
around 12000 MT per annum for PEBs and around 94,000 cu. meter per
annum for AAC blocks. While commercial production of PEBs
commenced in April 2009 that of AAC blocks commenced only in
January 2010.

Recent Results

In the 10 month period between April 2009 and January 2010, OCIPL
recorded a turnover of around INR94 million.


MAGTEL POWER: ICRA Places 'LBB-' Rating on INR45 Mil. LT Bank Debt
------------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LBB-' rating to the INR45 million long term
fund based limits of Magtel Power Systems Private Limited.  ICRA
has also assigned an A4 rating to the INR15 million short term
non-fund based limits of MPSPL.  The outlook on the assigned long-
term rating is stable.

The rating takes into account the company's modest scale of
operations, which results in limited economies of scale, the
company's significant client concentration risk, limited
bargaining power vis-a-vis customers as well as suppliers,
vulnerability to raw material prices and the intense competition
in the company's core business of manufacturing wound components,
which is likely to have an impact on volumes and margins in the
business.  Further, the high working capital intensity stemming
from its stretched receivable days have resulted in strained cash
flows.  The rating also factors in the facility shifting plans,
which although  would benefit the company in long-term by higher
sales and better ability to service clients, would in the medium
term lead to high funding requirements in the medium term.
However, ICRA has drawn comfort from the experienced management,
satisfactory demand potential and robust revenue growths and
satisfactory profitability indicators of the company in the past.
The company's ability to maintain a prudent capital structure
while funding growth and ability to achieve stabilized operations
in its new unit will be key rating sensitivities.

                        About Magtel Power

Magtel Power Systems Private Limited was set up in 2005 by three
entrepreneurs Mr. P.N. Hiriyannaiah, Mr. A.N. Sreenivasan, and
Mr. G.V. Nagesh at Bangalore. From the inception the company
manufactures wound components for Electrical, Telecom and
Automotive industries. The company?s clientele includes Pace Power
Systems  Private limited, GKR Power systems Private Limited,
Console India Private limited, and BHEL among others.

MPSPL reported a net profit of INR 5.5 million on an operating
income of INR 135 million in 2008-09 as against a net profit of
INR 2.7 million on an operating income of INR 100 million in
2007-08.


PETRO CARBON: ICRA Assigns 'LBB+' Rating on INR207.2MM Term Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LBB+' rating to the INR207.2 million term
loan and INR 120 million cash credit bank facilities of Petro
Carbon and Chemicals Pvt. Limited.  The outlook on the long term
rating is stable.  ICRA has also assigned an A4+ rating to the
INR750 million short term non-fund based bank facilities of PCCPL.

The ratings take into account the limited track record of
operations for PCCPL, weak financial structure with high gearing
levels and marginal cash accruals, limited client base, and high
dependence on imported Raw Petroleum Coke (RPC), the primary raw
material that exposes the company to fluctuations in foreign
exchange rates.  ICRA also notes that the RPC procured so far has
been of  varying quality thereby affecting production levels and
limited sources currently tied up for RPC supplies, exposing PCCPL
to raw material risk.  The ratings also factor in the continued
support from Narbheram Vishram (NV, rated at LBBB+ and A2 by
ICRA), a group entity, locational advantage for importing raw
materials being situated close to the Haldia port, logistical
benefits arising from connectivity to the Indian railways network
through a private railway siding and expected demand of Calcined
Petroleum Coke (CPC) arising out of significant capacity additions
announced/ being undertaken by the aluminium industry.  The
company is also expected to benefit from the existing customer
base of NV, who are steel manufacturers that require CPC in their
production process.

PCCPL was incorporated on November 5, 2007 and is promoted by the
Kolkata based Atha family.  The company purchased the assets of a
shut down CPC manufacturing unit located in Haldia, West Bengal,
with an annual capacity of 93,750 MTPA.  While the plant was
purchased in May 2008; production was commenced in November 2008.
Therefore, 2009-10 will be the first full year of operations for
PCCPL.

During FY09, PCCPL reported a net loss of INR25.8 million on an
operating income of INR66.1 million. PCCPL has also reported a
profit after tax of INR0.9 million on an operating income of
INR181.1 million during the period April ? November 2009.


PRISTINE COMMERCIALS: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Ratings on Various Debts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LBB' rating to the long term bank facilities
and an 'A4' rating to the short term bank facilities of Pristine
Commercials Private Limited.

The ratings reflect the company's recent commissioning, small
scale of operations and its exposure to intense competition with
low entry barriers inherent in the trading business.  The low
profitability attributable to the low value addition in the
trading business remains susceptible to commodity price
fluctuations and foreign exchange movements.  PCPL's capital
structure also remains adverse with high gearing as of
January 31, 2010, though borrowings are mainly from directors and
relatives.  The rating takes into account the locational
advantages arising from proximity to sea ports and markets.

Incorporated in 2007, Pristine Commercials Private Limited is
engaged in steel trading.  PCPL started operations in the FY 2008-
09 however the group and promoters have more than a decade of
experience in the steel trading business.  PCPL derives its sales
entirely from domestic market and has its registered office in
Mumbai.  PCPL recorded a net loss of INR 00.01 million on an
operating income of INR 0.77 million during FY 2008-09. Also, as
per the unaudited financial statement as on 31st January 2010,
PCPL has earned a net profit of INR 7.10 millions on an operating
income of INR 195.20 million.


RAMDEV SUGARS: ICRA Assigns 'LBB-' Rating on INR64.1MM LT Loan
--------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned rating of LBB- to the INR64.1 million long term
loans and INR 50 million fund based facilities of Ramdev Sugars
Private Limited.

The rating takes into consideration the long standing presence of
the promoters in the sugar industry in Madhya Pradesh, linkage
between sugar price and cane cost by virtue of being located in an
FRP2 state and healthy profitability indicators over the last five
years.  The rating is however constrained by instances of
liquidity mismatches in the recent past, vulnerability of the
company's sugar business to agro-climatic risks affecting
availability of raw material i.e. sugarcane, inherent cyclicality
in the sugar business and the fact that the profitability of the
sugar business remains vulnerable to government/regulatory
policies governing cane pricing, sugar release and pricing and
offtake of byproducts.  Further with limited cane development, the
average days of crushed (defined as the total crushing volume
divided by the plant capacity in tcd) has been relatively low in
the past.  The rating also takes into consideration the relatively
high gearing of the company which stood at 2.28 times at the end
of March 2009.

RSPL commenced operations as a small, 20 tcd Khandsari sugar
manufacturing unit in 1977 and over the years has increased to a
2,000 tcd sugar manufacturing unit.  The company is one of the
three sugar mills belonging to the Maheshwari Group of companies
based in Madhya Pradesh.  The group also engages in trading of
grains through its other set ups.  The sugar mills namely Ramdev
Sugars Pvt Ltd, Narmada Sugars Pvt Ltd and Shakti Sugars Pvt Ltd
with a total crushing capacity of 5,750 tcd are all located in the
fertile areas of Narsinghpur and Hoshangabad districts of central
MP where the climatic conditions are fairly viable and irrigation
is primarily through tube wells.  This Group has achieved a
Turnover of about INR 2 billion in the year 2007-08.  The group is
held by two brothers namely Mr. Navneet Lal Maheshwari and Mr.
Rajesh Maheshwari.  The mill has a 3 MW power generation capacity
which it fuels using bagasse generated in the sugar production.


NARMADA SUGARS: ICRA Places 'LBB-' Rating on INR65MM LT Loans
-------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned rating of LBB- to the INR65 million long term
loans and INR 50 million fund based facilities of Narmada Sugars
Private Limited.

The rating takes into consideration the long standing presence of
the promoters in the sugar industry in Madhya Pradesh, linkage
between sugar price and cane cost by virtue of being located in an
FRP2 state and healthy profitability indicators over the last five
years.  The rating is however constrained by instances of
liquidity mismatches in the recent past, vulnerability of the
company's sugar business to agro-climatic risks affecting
availability of raw material i.e. sugarcane, inherent cyclicality
in the sugar business and the fact that the profitability of the
sugar business remains vulnerable to government/regulatory
policies governing cane pricing, sugar release and pricing and
offtake of byproducts.  Further with limited cane development, the
average days of crushed (defined as the total crushing volume
divided by the plant capacity in tcd) has been relatively low in
the past.  The rating also takes into consideration the relatively
high gearing of the company which stood at 1.68 times at the end
of March 2009.

NSPL started its operations in 1992 as a khandsari unit with a
crushing capacity of 200MT which has grown in subsequent years to
its current crushing capacity of 2500 MT. In.  The company is one
of the three sugar mills belonging to the Maheshwari Group of
companies based in Madhya Pradesh.  The group also engages in
trading of grains through its other set ups.  The sugar mills
namely Ramdev Sugars Pvt Ltd, Narmada Sugars Pvt Ltd and Shakti
Sugars Pvt Ltd with a total crushing capacity of 5,750 tcd are all
located in the fertile areas of Narsinghpur and Hoshangabad
districts of central MP where the climatic conditions are fairly
viable and irrigation is primarily through tube wells.  This Group
has achieved a Turnover of about INR 2 billion in the year 2007-
08.  The group is held by two brothers namely Mr. Navneet Lal
Maheshwari and Mr. Rajesh Maheshwari.  The mill has a 3.5 MW power
generation capacity which it fuels using bagasse generated in the
sugar production.


RELIABLE SPACES: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Ratings on Various Bank Debts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LBB' rating to the long term sanctioned bank
limits of Reliable Spaces Private Limited.  The rating carries a
stable outlook.

Reliable Spaces Pvt Ltd, earlier Reliable Fashions Pvt. Ltd.,
develops and leases out property to corporate customers. RSPL has
leased a plot of land from MIDC at Airoli (Navi Mumbai) on which
it has constructed two buildings.  The first has been sub-leased
to Singapore-based Baker Hughes Pte while the second, called
Reliable Plaza (a Ground+7 storey structure) has been given on
leave and license basis to corporates like Sify Technologies,
Medpace India and Firstsource Solutions.

The rating is constrained by the low cover of monthly lease
rentals over the repayment obligations towards the rated term loan
and RSPLs exposure to vacancy/renegotiation risks.  The rating
however, favorably factors in the vantage location of the
property, strong profile of occupants of the property, healthy
visibility of future earnings from Sify Technologies, which
occupies four floors (approximately 67%) of the property and the
possibility of raising funds from other businesses within the
group including planned sale of assets.

Reliable Spaces Pvt Ltd, earlier Reliable Fashions Pvt. Ltd.,
develops and leases out property to corporate customers. Prior to
FY 09, RFPL had two lines of business: exports of readymade
garments and real-estate development.  With increasing focus on
its real-estate business, RFPL rechristened itself as RSPL in
February 2009 and following an organizational restructuring, the
garments division was demerged into a separate entity called
Reliable Clothing Pvt Ltd effective 1st April, 2009.  While the
fixed assets pertaining to the garments division were transferred
to RCPL as part of the demerger, the liabilities including the
outstanding balances of the rated working capital facilities were
retained in RSPL.

RSPL has leased a plot of land from MIDC at Airoli (Navi Mumbai)
on which it has constructed two buildings. The first has been sub-
leased to Singapore-based Baker Hughes Pte while the second,
called Reliable Plaza (a Ground+7 storey structure) has been given
on leave  and license basis tocorporates like Sify Technologies,
Medpace India, Firstsource Solutions.


S.D BANSAL: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Rating on Various Bank Facilities
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned LBB rating to the INR120.00 million fund based
limit and INR135.00 million term loans of S.D Bansal Iron & Steel
Pvt Ltd.  The outlook on the rating is stable.

ICRA's rating of SDBIPL factors in modest scale of operations and
high competitive pressures in the steel bars business, which is
reflected in its modest operating margins.  The rating  is also
constrained by SDBIPL high debt-to-equity ratio  (stood at 2.27
times as on March 31, 2009) mostly consisting of term loans  taken
for establishing  Steel  Rolling mill business.  This coupled with
modest operating margins has resulted in modest debt servicing
indicators.  However, the rating takes support from the group
profile with strong business presence of promoters in education &
construction industry.

S.D. Bansal Iron & Steel Pvt Ltd commenced its operations in
financial year 2008-09 with the establishment of 30000 MT per
annum capacity Rolling mill.  The promoters started in the
construction business more than three decades ago.  Over the years
the group diversified its business presence into education with
the setting up of Sriniwas Education Society in Madhya Pradesh.
The educational Society currently has seven institutions under its
educational trust with more than 10000 students in its rolls.  In
2008 the group went in for further diversification with the
setting up of a Rolling mill for manufacturing of M. bars.


SHAKTI SUGAR: ICRA Assigns 'LBB-' Rating on INR140MM LT Loans
-------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned rating of LBB- to the INR140 million long term
loans and INR 30 million fund based facilities of Shakti Sugar
Mill Private Limited.

The rating takes into consideration the long standing presence of
the promoters in the sugar industry in Madhya Pradesh and linkage
between sugar price and cane cost by virtue of being located in an
FRP2 state.  However the rating is constrained by the limited
track record of operations as it has recently commenced production
and the relatively high gearing of the company which stood at 4.80
times at the end of March 2009.  The rating also takes into
consideration vulnerability of the company's sugar business to
agro-climatic risks affecting availability of raw material i.e.
sugarcane, inherent cyclicality in the sugar business and the fact
that the profitability of the sugar business remains vulnerable to
government/regulatory policies governing cane pricing, sugar
release and pricing and offtake of byproducts.

SSMPL was incorporated in 2008 as a 1250 tcd sugar manufacturing
unit.  The unit commenced commercial operations in November 2009.
The company is one of the three sugar mills belonging to the
Maheshwari Group of companies based in Madhya Pradesh.  The group
also engages in trading of grains through its other set ups.  The
sugar mills namely Ramdev Sugars Pvt Ltd, Narmada Sugars Pvt Ltd
and Shakti Sugars Pvt Ltd with a total crushing capacity of 5,750
tcd are all located in the fertile areas of Narsinghpur and
Hoshangabad districts of central MP where the climatic conditions
are fairly viable and irrigation is primarily through tube wells.
This Group has achieved a Turnover of about INR 2 billion in the
year 2007-08.  The group is held by two brothers namely Mr.
Navneet Lal Maheshwari and Mr. Rajesh Maheshwari.


SIDDHI EDIBLES: ICRA Places 'LBB-' Rating on INR35MM LT Bank Debts
------------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LBB-' rating to the existing INR35 million
long term fund based limits of Siddhi Edibles Private Limited.
The outlook on the long term rating is stable.  ICRA has also
assigned an A4 rating to the INR95 million short term non-fund
based limits of SEPL.

The ratings takes into account SEPL's weak financial profile
characterized by low profitability and high gearing, leading to
depressed levels of coverage indicators.  The ratings also factor
in SEPL's high sales concentration risk, with its top 2 customers
accounting for more than 80% of its turnover during 2008-09.  The
risk is further accentuated by the absence of any long term
contract with its customers.  The ratings are also constrained by
the high level of competition among the existing players in the
agro-based commodities business which puts a downward pressure on
profitability.  The ratings however factor in the established and
continuing relationship of SEPL with its key clients and
suppliers, its presence in diverse segments i.e., agro-commodities
and mobile phones and electronic and hardware products like LCD
monitors, DVDs and other related computer and electronic
accessories, which leads to product diversification to an extent.

SEPL was incorporated in July 2003 and has been promoted by the
Bhura family based in Kolkata.  The company trades in agro-
commodities like yellow peas, black matpe, yellow maize, sugar,
gwar seeds, soya bean and chana.  Since 2007-08, the company
started trading in mobile phones, walkie talkie sets, telecom
equipments and other related electronic and hardware fittings,
which are used for fabrication of telecommunication towers.

Recently the company has also started trading in electronic
equipments like Digital Trunking System, LCD Monitors, CPU Cabinet
and other computer related accessories.  During 2008-09, SEPL
reported a net profit of INR0.6 million on net sales of INR351.5
million. During the first nine months of 2009-10, the company
posted a net profit of INR3.6 million on net sales of INR374.5
million.


SPARKLINGS TRADERS: ICRA Places 'LBB-' Rating on INR16MM LT Loans
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned the 'LBB-' rating to INR16.0 million long term
fund based bank lines of Sparklings Traders Private Limited.  ICRA
has also assigned the A4 rating to INR100.0 million non fund based
and US$0.27 million fund based short term bank lines of the
company.  Outlook on long term rating is stable.  Though a part of
short term bank limits of the company are denominated in foreign
currency, ICRA rating for the same are on national rating scale,
as distinct from international rating scale.

The ratings are constrained by weak financial indicators
characterized by low profitability which is inherent to trading
business and weak cash flows of the company.  Cash flows of the
company are weak due to increase in interest and finance charges
and increase in receivables days. Scale of operations of the
company remains low resulting in lack of economies of scale.
Further, capital structure of the company is highly leveraged due
to low accruals and increasing working capital requirements.  The
borrowings however also include interest free unsecured loan from
promoters, adjusted for which the capital structure improves
somewhat to 1.8 times as at end of January 2010 (based on
unaudited, provisional financial statement).  Low profits and
increase in interest and finance charges have resulted in weak
coverage ratios for the company.  Customer portfolio of the
company is moderately diversified with top customer accounting for
close to 31% of sales while top 10 customers account for ~ 66%.
However, ICRA notes that greater customer diversification may not
be possible at its current scale of operations.  The company
operates in a highly competitive business scenario with low entry
barriers which exposes the company to pricing pressures.  The
ability to manage the volatility inherent in product prices is
important, as sudden fall in prices can result in inventory
losses.  ICRA notes that the company procures large part of its
goods from international market which exposes it to risk of
volatility in foreign currency rates.  The ratings however
favorably factor long experience of the promoter in the business
of trading in chemicals, established relationship with key
customers and moderate working capital intensity of the company.

                     About Sparklings Traders

In 1980s Mr. Satish Mehra, an experienced trader in chemicals,

Limited which was later remained to Sparklings Traders Private

Recent Results

margin of INR1.6 million on turnover of INR166.7 million

SURYALAKSHMI COTTON: ICRA Reaffirms 'LBB' Rating on INR1.5BB Loans
------------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has re-affirmed its 'LBB' rating to the INR1.55 billion term
loans (outstanding being INR1.51 billion) and INR725 million fund-
based facilities of Suryalakshmi Cotton Mills Limited.  The
outlook on the rating is stable.  ICRA has also re-affirmed its A4
rating to the INR315 million non-fund based facilities and the
INR62.5 million fund-based facilities of SLCM.

The assigned ratings factor in the weak financial profile of SLCM,
as characterized by its stretched capital structure and low
profitability margins on account of debt-funded capital
expenditure post 2005-06, when the denim industry went through a
cyclical downtrend and realizations crashed following weak demand
in the export markets and overcapacity situation in the domestic
market.  In the yarn segment, the demand environment was weak with
oversupply situation in standard count yarns.  In addition, the
surge in cotton prices had affected the profitability of SLCM.
The above conditions resulted in the company opting for
restructuring its term loans repayment to improve its liquidity
position in the last financial year.  The demand-supply dynamics
took on a positive trend in the past few months following
improving demand conditions in the export markets and better
profitability for the company in the last two quarters. However,
the increase in cotton prices and the significant competition in
the domestic market could limit the improvement on the margins
front.  The ratings also factor in the company's long-standing
presence in the textile industry; its established presence in the
domestic and export markets, which would favor the company in the
long term and its product diversification in the yarn and denim
segments, which supports revenue growth.

Suryalakshmi Cotton Mills Limited was set up in 1962, initially
with a capacity of 6000 spindles for manufacture of cotton and
blended yarns.  Over a period of four decades, it has expanded its
spinning capacity to 48,000 spindles and has diversified into
denim fabric manufacturing activity with a capacity of 40 million
metres. SLCM is promoted by Shri L.N Agarwal, who is the Chairman
& Managing Director of the company.

In 9m 2009-10, SLCM reported operating profit and net profit of
INR 335 million and INR 2 million, respectively, on a revenue base
of INR 2.97 billion as against operating profit and net loss of
INR 270 million and INR 157 million, respectively, in 2008-09 on a
revenue base of INR 3.60 billion.


TATA MOTORS: Bondholders Convert $345 Million Bonds to Shares
-------------------------------------------------------------
Tata Motors Ltd. said it has successfully completed its bond
conversion.  The company said in a statement issued on March 30
that bondholders representing 93% of the JPY bonds and 76% of USD
series bonds opted to convert their bonds into Ordinary Shares.
The company was able to extinguish debt worth US$345 million of
these bonds at current exchange rates.

Tata Motors had offered bondholders of their 0% JPY 11,760 million
and 1% USD 300 million Convertible Bonds an option to convert
their bonds into Ordinary Shares during a 5-day period from March
23 to March 29, 2010.  In this period, bondholders could opt to
receive a higher number of shares per bond.  Bondholders, who did
not participate, would continue with all the terms of their bonds
prior to this one-off offer.

As a result of the above offer, the company said it has allotted
26.64 million equity shares to the bondholders, who exercised the
option to convert these bonds into Ordinary Shares during the
offer period.

The offer, managed by Standard Chartered Bank, Citigroup, Credit
Suisse and J.P. Morgan, has helped improve the company's net
worth, reduce indebtedness and enhance financial flexibility.

Mr. C. Ramakrishnan, Chief Financial Officer, Tata Motors, said,
"The reduced conversion price option made eminent sense from
bondholders' perspective, who got additional value by opting to
convert into equity. From the company's perspective, this exercise
is in line with its continued efforts to deleverage its balance
sheet."

WOCKHARDT LTD: Terminates Nutritional Business Deal with Abbott
---------------------------------------------------------------
Wockhardt Limited and Abbott have jointly decided to terminate the
nutritional business agreement they signed in July 2009.

The Times of India reports that the two companies said they have
jointly decided to kill the deal, which would have seen Abbott
acquire the nutrition businesses of Wockhardt, Carol Info Services
and certain other Wockhardt units and group companies, including
nutrition manufacturing facilities located in Lalru and Jagraon.
The deal was valued at about INR630 crore (US$130 million).

Though Wockhardt did not specify the reasons for terminating the
deal, analysts said Wockhardt was unable to resolve the debt
restructuring issues with some of its lenders, the report notes.

Wockhardt is currently facing a winding up petition in the
Honorable High Court, Mumbai, as it has defaulted on its
obligations under the terms of the Defaulted Bonds.  If the
Company continues to ignore the efforts made by the holders of the
Defaulted Bonds to salvage the situation by restructuring the debt
in a mutually acceptable manner, the Company may remain exposed to
this winding up action, which may restrict the Company from
selling its nutrition business.

-------------------------------------------------------------
PT Bumi Resources reported a US$190.5 million net profit in 2009
due to a US$275 million charge on deferred mining expenses,
Jakarta Globe reports.

Citing Bumi's vice president for investor relations, Dileep
Srivastava, the Globe relates that this year's profit was down by
49% compared with the company's adjusted US$371.7 million net
profit in 2008.  The unadjusted figure in 2008 was $645.37
million.

The Globe relates Dileep said Bumi's production volumes rose 19.5%
to 63.1 million tons while its costs decreased to $28.3 per ton
from $33.11 in 2008.  However, a lower average sales price in
2009, of $61 per ton, down from $73 per ton in 2008, contributed
to a 4.7% drop in revenue to $3.22 billion, Dileep added.

This year, Bumi was expecting to outperform 2009 on sales volume,
revenue and ebitda, he said.

----------------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg News, citing the Yomiuri newspaper, reports that Jupiter
Telecommunications Co., a Japanese cable-television company, may
dissolve its mobile-phone alliance with Willcom Inc.

SOUTH CANTERBURY: Approved For Extended Deposit Guarantee Scheme
----------------------------------------------------------------
South Canterbury Finance Lid has been approved to participate in
the Crown's Extended Retail Deposit Guarantee Scheme.

The scheme will provide all eligible investors with the benefit of
the Crown guarantee until December 31, 2011.

South Canterbury Finance Chairman Allan Hubbard said a major
milestone has been achieved.

"We are pleased we have met the qualifying criteria for inclusion
in the extended guarantee scheme.  It is a further acknowledgement
of the strides the Company has taken in recent months to retain a
Standard & Poor's "BB" credit rating, increase capital,
restructure, improve governance, purge the loan book, and
reorganize the business into three divisions covering performing
loans, impaired assets and investments.

"We regard acceptance into the extended guarantee scheme as a seal
of approval.  It is the next step in the journey back towards the
Company's traditional role as a source of funding to support
economic growth."

South Canterbury Finance Chief Executive Officer Sandy Maier said
the acceptance of the Company into the extended guarantee scheme
will allow the offer of a diversified suite of longer term and new
deposit products.  These will provide an orderly transition for
the Company, investors and the Crown from the guarantee scheme and
provide a stable long term funding base.

"The essence of South Canterbury Finance's success has been its
very loyal investor base.  Acceptance into the extended guarantee
scheme will allow the Company to provide attractive investment
opportunities that meet their requirements," Mr. Maier said.

"The extended guarantee provides additional comfort to investors.
That said, we are confident South Canterbury Finance can return to
its long-term position of being a successful and profitable leader
in the non-bank sector.  The recent recapitalizations of South
Canterbury Finance have resulted in the Company having $253
million of equity capital providing us with a solid base from
which to achieve our objectives."

The extended guarantee scheme makes a number of changes when it
comes into effect at the end of the current Retail Deposit
Guarantee scheme.  The most significant of these for eligible
investors is a reduction in the maximum sum covered for each
investor to $250,000.

of NZ$37.5 million by April 30, 2010.

     NZ$152.5 million of new equity in February 2010 in
     conjunction with Nthe acquisition of two businesses
     with a record of strong earnings in Helicopters NZ
     Limited and Scales Corporation Limited;

   * A purge of the loan book and increased provisioning
     for impaired assets totalling NZ$203.7 million;

     impaired or non-performing loan book including the majority
     of the property portfolio, and the investments group which
     includes Scales Corp, Helicopters NZ and the company's
     extensive dairy assets.

The latest capital raising has been arranged by Forsyth Barr.
Taking into account the NZ$22 million of new equity provided by
Torchlight Fund No. 1 LP, just over NZ$200 million in total of new
equity has been injected into South Canterbury Finance since
December 2009.

"This is a substantial amount of progress in a short period of
time and a major recapitalization of the company.  We are
continuing to consider the various alternative transactions and
structures available to us as we look forward to achieving the
requirements for non-bank deposit takers," Mr. Maier said.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-AP delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-AP editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Tuesday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to
publication.  Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual
trades.  Prices for actual trades are probably different.  Our
objective is to share information, not make markets in publicly
traded securities.  Nothing in the TCR-AP constitutes an offer
or solicitation to buy or sell any security of any kind.  It is
likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR-AP editor holds
some position in the issuers' public debt and equity securities
about which we report.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR-AP. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com

Friday's edition of the TCR-AP features a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on the
latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical
cost net of depreciation may understate the true value of a
firm's assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance
sheet for liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at
which equity securities trade in public market are determined by
more than a balance sheet solvency test.
